  • I've ranted a few times on Perlmonks [perlmonks.org] when people get "closure" and "anon sub" mixed up.

    A closure is any subroutine that needs to grab its environment because it's going out of scope, and may or may not be named.

    An anonymous subroutine is a coderef, and may or may not be a closure.

    I've got code to demonstrate all four types of subroutines (named vs anonymous, closure vs not) at Monks somewhere.
